The spectacular coast of Maine is the perfect location to bring a group and adventure activities abound. Rock climb one day then sea kayak, bike, hike, or play mini-golf - Acadia National Park and the nearby town of Bar Harbor offers a full selection of activities for groups to choose from.

Acadia Mountain Guides are among the best in the country at facilitating a climbing experience for small groups. We believe in fully involving the participants as much as possible - climbing, rappelling, belaying and often feature cool closure activities such as a tyrolean rope traverse over the Atlantic if desired. Participants will get much more than an "exposure to climbing" and will not spend their day waiting around to climb. We have seen how many other climbing schools do it and we guarantee you will have an active and engaging experience climbing with us. Acadia Mountain Guides Climbing School led the way in developing the nationally recognized curriculum which focuses on teaching state of the art technical and educational methods for teaching climbing to individuals and groups.

Group programs are available in Acadia National Park, Clifton (near Bangor), Camden, in the Kennebec River and Penobscot River areas (works well when combined with a rafting trip or a hike up Katahdin), Moosehead Lake region, central New Hampshire and the White Mountains (North Conway, Franconia Notch, Pinkham Notch, Rumney).

A History of
Leading the way...

Acadia Mountain Guides Climbing School is the preeminent leader in climbing instruction and guiding in Acadia and across Maine. We specialize in designing customized experiences or training for you, your family or your group.

Directed by internationally recognized IFMGA guide Jon Tierney who has been climbing in Acadia since 1982. Jon has over 30 years of local and worldwide experience. The IFMGA requires full AMGA certification as a rock, alpine and ski mountaineering guide.

All AMGCS instructors are certified by either the AMGA or the PCIA and all guides have been trained or certified by the AMGA.

• Since 1994 •
AMGCS is one of 30 AMGA accredited programs in the US and was one of the earliest to achieve accreditation.

AMGCS is the only climbing school in Maine to remain continuously accredited by the AMGA for eighteen years - several years longer than any other local service. We have had one or more full time AMGA certified rock instructors or rock guides on staff each year since 1994 - sixteen years more than any other local school.

• Since 2007 •
AMGCS has the distinction of also being accredited to the highest standards of the Professional Climbing Instructors Association. The PCIA requires all staff to be individually trained and certified.
